  • Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today. What to know now  1. Trump communications collected: Rep. Devin Nunes, (R-California), announced Wednesday that private conversations between President Donald Trump and his transition team may have been improperly distributed to spy agencies after they were inadvertently collected as part of an intelligence investigation of other targets. Nunes said he was troubled enough by information provided to him about the communications to go to the White House on Wednesday to inform the president in person. Nunes said the information collected had nothing to do with the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The FBI said Monday it is investigating any possible connection between the Trump campaign and Russian meddling in the election. 2. Health care vote: A vote on a health care bill that is essential in repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act – Obamacare – is set to take place Thursday in the House. Trump and leaders in the House have lobbied members to vote for the bill, but as of late Wednesday, they had not locked down enough votes for it to pass. The president has warned those who don’t vote for the bill that they could face consequences come re-election. 3. London attack: A man stabbed a London police officer to death Wednesday after he ran down pedestrians on a bridge near Parliament in a terror attack on the British government. Four people, including the attacker, were killed, and at least 40 others injured. British lawmakers sheltered in place in Parliament for hours after the mid-afternoon attack. One woman was pulled alive from the waters of the Thames after she was either knocked off the Westminster Bridge or jumped to avoid the car. The suspect has not been identified. An early morning raid in the London area Thursday netted seven people suspected of being involved with the attack.  4. Wisconsin shootings: A Wisconsin police officer and three others were killed Wednesday in what law enforcement officials said was a domestic violence incident that led to three separate shootings. The shootings took place in a bank, at an attorney’s office and in an apartment complex near Everest, Wisconsin, which is about 90 miles west of Green Bay, Wisconsin.  5. Sweet 16: The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament continues Thursday as the next round of playoffs gets underway. Sixteen teams – the Sweet 16 – will play over the next two days as we make our way to the Elite Eight, then the Final Four. The championship game is set for April 3.  And one more Nominations for the Daytime Emmy Awards were announce Wednesday.

  • John Beilein conjured up the highlight-reel catch that Patriots receiver Julian Edelman made during New England's game-tying drive in the Super Bowl, and said the Wolverines should keep that sort of play — an outlier, as he called it — in mind. 'The point with the Super Bowl catch was that Edelman, he willed that catch,' Beilein said Wednesday. 'We have to will stuff to happen. You have to work hard. I really stressed the outlier things, too.' Michigan's road from the bubble to the Sweet 16 continues Thursday night with a game against third-seeded Oregon. Since the Super Bowl, the Wolverines are 12-2, including a sweep through the Big Ten tournament that secured their spot in the NCAAs. Derrick Walton Jr., has averaged nearly 20 points a game and the Wolverines have shot better than 50 percent from the floor. The key to the turnaround? 'When you have great kids to work with, they'll believe and you they trust you,' the coach said. Other things to watch for in Thursday's Sweet 16 games: PLAYERS OF THE YEAR: They both could be holding Player of the Year trophies at the end of the year. And yet, when the NBA draft rolls around, they will likely wait a long time to hear their names called. Purdue vs. Kansas features a matchup of two of the season's best players: Caleb Swanigan of the Boilermakers and Frank Mason III of the Jayhawks. Most of the current mock drafts have Swanigan going in the lower part of the first round and Mason teetering somewhere between the first and second rounds. It's the latest in a long string of evidence showing that the best college players don't necessarily look like the best pro prospects. Purdue coach Matt Painter calls Swanigan, a 6-foot-9 forward, a 'poster child for today's player in terms of going to the draft, listening to what NBA people do and then improving on the things that NBA people told him he needs to improve on.' Painter said Swanigan's improvement in shooting, fitness and rebounding have improved his stock. Mason is averaging nearly 21 points as a senior this year. His main drawback is size. He's only 5-11. Still, coach Bill Self called Mason, who had academic issues coming out of high school, 'the steal of that draft class nationally.' YOU LOOK FAMILIAR: One reason Xavier is a regular at the NCAA Tournament and, for that matter, in the Sweet 16: Arizona coach Sean Miller. Miller coached the Musketeers for five seasons before he left in 2009 for Arizona. This is the second Sweet-16 meeting in three years between the teams. 'I wish it was different, but it isn't,' said Miller, who took Xavier to the Sweet 16 his last two seasons at the Cincinnati school. 'And now that I've said that, the focus clearly is on both teams, the players, the great players on both teams and I think both programs vying to stay alive and trying to advance.' Xavier coach Chris Mack was Miller's assistant back in the day. He's led the team to the second weekend four times in the last eight years. More often than not, the Musketeers have been portrayed as an underdog. They're an 11 seed this year. Mack: 'You're only an underdog if you feel like you're the lesser team. And I don't feel that way about our guys and I don't think they feel that way about each other.' ANOTHER COMEBACK: Gonzaga's 7-1 center, Przemek Karnowski, had a less-than-dominating first weekend of the tournament but the Bulldogs won anyway. All in all, a much better situation than last season. Karnowski missed most of last season after back surgery, and during much of that time, resuming day-to-day functions were more a priority than returning to the court. 'Initially it was just, we've got to help this kid somehow just get back to normal activity, a normal life where he can get up out of bed,' coach Mark Few said. 'And it was a struggle to fit a 7-foot, 300-plus-pound guy into a car and get from point A to point B.' Karnowski, who had nine and 10 points in Gonzaga's wins over South Dakota State and Northwestern last week, said the long road back from his injury deepened his appreciation for hoops. The Bulldogs play fourth-seeded West Virginia on Thursday. He said he had trouble 'just walking, preparing my own food, getting out of bed stuff like that. So it was tough for me because I always been kind of close to sports. 'It was sad for me, but at the same time I had a great support system, with my coaches, my parents,' he said. 'All my teammates, they were there for me whenever I needed them. And it was huge for me just to be there and in that position. My position wasn't the best, but they were always there for me.
  • A 3-month-old baby girl was killed and a woman critically injured in a house fire on Paines Avenue this morning, officials reported. Authorities do not believe the fire was an act of arson.  “There’s no reason to believe that this fire is suspicious at this time,” Atlanta fire Sgt. Cortez Stafford said. Firefighters responded to the area of Paines Avenue between Fox Street and Donald Lee Hallowell Parkway about 2 a.m. When they arrived, they discovered heavy fire coming out of the front door of the house and smoke and fire billowing out of the windows, Stafford said. The home appeared to be vacant with security screens up and boards on the window, Stafford said. After firefighters knocked down some of the flames, they found the woman with burns to the majority of her body in a back room of the house. She was taken out of a back window, so crews wouldn’t have to take her through the front of the home, which was still burning, Stafford said. “As they got deeper into the house and got some of the fire knocked down, they also discovered an infant in the home,” he said. “And that infant was discovered to be deceased on scene unfortunately.” Fire investigators are working to determine what caused the blaze with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms. Authorities talked to witnesses and used a police dog in their investigation. Neighbor Vincent Jones told Channel 2 Action News a few weeks ago he noticed boards had been removed from the windows and front door of the house. “I heard a couple of voices, so I attempted to try to keep an eye on it,” Jones said. “But I never saw anybody in it.”  It is unclear why the woman was in the home with an infant and what caused the blaze.  In other news:

  • An off-duty Fulton County police officer shot a man after a chase in Atlanta Wednesday morning, the GBI says. The officer, whose name has not been released, was in his personal vehicle about 11 a.m., when he responded to a theft at a T-Mobile store on Mount Zion Parkway in Morrow, GBI spokesman Rich Bahan said.  The officer followed the suspect’s car into the city limits of Atlanta while reporting the incident to 911, Bahan said. At some point near Alyson Court, the two cars collided and when the driver got out of his car the off-duty officer shot him with his service weapon, Bahan said.   MORE:  Sheriff: Man out on bond for murder arrested after fighting victim’s family Ex-NFL player jailed after allegedly attacking woman in front of kids Police: Men brought ‘bag of bullets’ to shootout with alleged gang members Witness Jay Mitchell told Channel 2 Action News he thinks the man was shot in the stomach area after the police officer chased him and tried to pull him over. The suspect kept driving even after he was shot, Bahan said, and Atlanta police stopped him in the 1700 block of Lakewood Avenue. Whether the off-duty Fulton County officer stayed on the scene was not released, but his car was found parked at a store on Cleveland Avenue, Channel 2 reported. The man who was shot was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, Bahan said. The shooting is the fourth in less than a week involving a Georgia officer.

  • U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch vowed to uphold the law if confirmed to the nation’s highest court, not tipping his hand as he sidestepped controversial political subjects, as Gorsuch directly pushed back against President Donald Trump’s criticism of federal judges. “When anyone criticizes the honesty or integrity, the motives of a federal judge, I find that disheartening; I find that demoralizing,” Gorsuch said in response to questions from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT). “Anyone including the President of the United States?” Blumenthal pressed. “Anyone is anyone,” Gorsuch replied. In a day of testimony that stretched for almost twelve hours, Gorsuch parried most questions from Democrats, who tried in vain to get him to reveal his views on issues like abortion, and items that might come before the Supreme Court, like President Trump’s travel ban. Gorsuch repeatedly refused to take the bait. “I can’t get involved in politics, and I think it would be very imprudent of judges to start commenting on political disputes,” Gorsuch said. Under questioning from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Gorsuch was asked what he had discussed with President Trump on the issue of abortion. “In that interview did he ever ask you to overrule Roe v Wade?” Graham asked. “No, Senator,” Gorsuch replied, adding that if the President had asked that question, “I would have walked out the door.” Gorsuch was pressed about the President in a number of different ways, telling Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) that, “nobody is above the law in this country, and that includes the President of the United States.” With Republicans strongly in support of Gorsuch, there was already maneuvering behind the scenes over the expected floor fight in the Senate, as Democrats have made clear they think the GOP should be forced to get 60 votes for his nomination. That has prompted GOP leaders to criticize the threat of a filibuster. “If there aren’t 60 votes for a nominee like Neil Gorsuch it’s appropriate to ask the question is there any nominee any Republican president could make that Democrats would approve,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Gorsuch’s lengthy day of testimony ended on a light note, as Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) suggested to Gorsuch that he have a cocktail before bed. “Just don’t drink vodka,” Kennedy said to chuckles from the audience. Kennedy then drew even more laughter by adding in one more surprise. “You never been to Russia, have you?” “I’ve never been to Russia,” a smiling Gorsuch said.
  • Donald Trump Jr. is facing criticism for tweeting in the hours after Wednesday's London attack a months-old comment from London Mayor Sadiq Khan that terror attacks are part of living in a big city. Trump Jr. tweeted : 'You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.' The tweet included a link to a Sept. 22 story from Britain's Independent newspaper that includes the quote from Khan, who was asking Londoners to be vigilant following a bombing in New York City. British Member of Parliament Wes Streeting was among numerous Britons who responded to the tweet with criticism. He called Trump Jr. 'a disgrace' and accused him of using a terrorist attack for 'political gain.' When asked about Trump Jr. on Thursday, Khan told CNN: 'I'm not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr. I've been doing far more important things over the past 24 hours.' He added that 'terrorists hate the fact' that cities including London, New York and Paris have 'diverse communities living together peacefully.
